    Wiper motor sticking - cleaning contacts?

    My wiper motor has started sticking - as in it stops a few inches up the window instead of parking the blades fully. It's intermittent but pretty much sticks 90% of the time so quite annoying.

    I know someone here said it was down to a faulty contact inside the motor itself - if you take the motor covers apart you can sort the contact then use self tappers to put the motor covers back together?

    Anyone done this and if so how easy is it to get the motor out of the car, fixed then back in again?

    wipers

    I had a similar problem, replaced the motor, made no difference, it turned out to be the mechanism that the motor drives that actually moves the wipers.

    Someone did a write up on here for taking the motor apart and cleaning it. Might be a idea to search for that
